Get over 50 patterns for Easter perler beads! There are a variety of hama bead patterns including Easter eggs, bunnies, chicks, flowers, and more.
What are your favorite Easter traditions? Does your family decorate eggs? Hand out baskets? Make desserts? Do Easter egg hunts?
Could be all of the above.
When we were young, we did all of the Easter traditions. We went to church and dressed up. We also had ham every Easter dinner, and we never had ham. But it was a thing.
In addition to all the traditions, we loved Easter crafts. We used so many cotton balls to make bunnies and sheep, my parents should’ve bought stock in the company. You know what I’m talking about!
If you’re jonesing for some great holiday craft ideas for the littles, I’ve got hours of entertainment for you below with a big collection of Easter perler beads!
There are over 50 patterns below with all sorts of traditional Easter characters like bunnies, chicks, eggs, and more. They range from very simple to more advanced.
Perler beads are recommended for ages six and up, so this is a very fun craft to try with kids. They love perler beads (also known as hama beads, fuse beads, or melty beads).
They aren’t just fun for kids either. EVERY time I bring out the beads for my nieces at my house, the adults join in. Without fail!
I know you’re absolutely going to love this post.
Tips for Using Perler Beads
Before we get into the patterns, I want to review a few basics of using fuse beads to make sure you get the best results. If you don’t want the tips, scroll down to the bottom to get the Easter perler bead patterns.
Remember that the overall goal is to melt the beads together on both sides while still leaving the holes open. Here’s how you get the best results.
Use Ironing or Parchment Paper
Place ironing paper or parchment paper over the beads on the pegboard. Be gentle so you don’t disturb the beads underneath.
Heat your iron to the medium setting (no steam). In a circular motion, begin to iron the project. Don’t press down too hard with the iron. When ironed properly, the beads will still have an open center. Check and make sure your edges are melted. Let the design cool on the pegboard.
Note: BE CAREFUL about lifting up the paper while you’re ironing! If you want to check, carefully peel back paper around the edge of your design and see if all the beads are melted.
If you lift the paper up quickly and there are a lot of unmelted beads, they will easily fall off or go flying and you may be forced to start over. Sometimes the edges need more time so when you check, just check the edges and peel paper back slowly.
Another Note: some beads melt faster than others (clear melts faster than white, for example). So some holes might be larger than others. It’s okay! That’s part of the look of the project.
Iron the Other Side
Remove the bead design from the pegboard. Flip it over to the non-melted side and repeat the fusing process.
Remove the Paper
Let cool completely and remove the paper again (which is reusable). Some people pull the paper off after they iron the first side, but I just wait until the end and peel off both pieces. It’s up to you!
Now if you’re ready for the Easter perler beads, here are the patterns.
Easter Hama Beads
Make sure to check out these notes:
- A few of these patterns are larger than a 29 x 29 pegboard, so you’ll either need a extra large pegboard (49 x 69 tall) or to put multiple square peg boards together to form a larger “canvas.”
- In addition to square pegboards, you’ll see heart and hexagon pegboards. These are fun to have in your arsenal if you plan to do a lot of perler-ing.
- You’ll see a couple of the pattern backgrounds below aren’t white – that’s simply to give contrast so you can see where all the white beads should go. You don’t need to add the background (but you can if you want to).
- Don’t stick to my colors necessarily. Customize with your favorite color beads.
- I typically start with easier, smaller patterns in my list and then move on to the more difficult ones. You’ll see several different versions of bunnies, eggs, etc. with larger patterns; just keep scrolling!
